Wonderful Ruby Anniversary Celebrations

Abigail and Simon wanted to celebrate their Ruby wedding anniversary with all their friends and family but in the comfort of their own home.

We helped them organise a marquee and catering tent from Dave at Meridian Marquees, who also supplied all of the tables and chairs. The catering equipment needed for their chosen menu was arranged with Abbey Catering Services, who we use on a weekly basis throughout the year for all of our service-ware.

With the logistics in place Abigail and Simon then had the dilemma of what food to have. We helped them come up with a menu that would please everyone as well as offer choice, so that they didn’t have to get everyone’s pre-orders. Our hot fork buffet menu fitted the bill perfectly, and with the weather still being rather unpredictable in May it was nice to have some hot options too.

57 guests in total, the celebrations started off with some chilled fizz and canape, served by our staff. Canape included chicken satay skewers, roasted Mediterranean vegetable bruschetta, basil pesto & cream cheese with sun-dried tomato crispy filo tartlets & Thai crab & chilli toasts.

At around 13:30 the guests took their seats in the marquee for the main meal; this was the menu Abigail and Simon chose:

Moroccan lamb tagine

Poached salmon fillet in a herb & caper sauce

Roasted Mediterranean vegetable lasagne

Persian rice salad

Greek salad

Roasted butternut squash & rocket salad with olive oil & toasted seeds


Summer berry pavlova

Banoffee pie

Tropical fresh fruit salad


Tea & Coffee

If you have something to celebrate why not let us take the strain and organise it all for you so you can concentrate on catching up with friends and family without the pressure of any food prep, cooking and clearing up afterwards.
